The hardware is comprised of Fender tuning machines, a bone nut, a Fender vintage-style standard synchronized tremolo bridge, and white top hat knobs with a 1-ply parchment pickguard.

This guitar was heavy relic’d by its original owner, all the “damage” and wear appears 100% intentional. Keeping this in mind The Guitar itself is in overall good condition. The hardware is nicely aged with authentic tarnish and patina, the finish is worn and checked, all of the heavy relicing has a worn in feel. There is some fill spots, one on its top and one on its lower horn tip. The case has hand drawn graphics and signed by It’s previous owner Mark Bakker. 
Guitar is freshly setup and restrung with 9-42 strings and includes original hard shell case, original 3 way switch, trem arm, ashtray cover, cable, Mark Bakker Signature Pics and a Jeff Beck Ticket Stub From 1993.
